It’s ALMOST HERE!!!!!
After over three years of work, Fred and Lily’s story is finally almost ready to be released! Are you as excited as I am? Do you want to be part of making sure the whole world reads this book? Then keep reading after the title announcement for a very special opportunity below.
As some of you may already know, the title and cover which I originally used last year have both been changed. I’m currently in the middle of having a professional cover designed (can’t wait to show you all as soon as it’s finished!)
The title, however, has been an interesting journey. I had originally decided to call the book “All My Love Forever and Ever”, based on the phrase Freddie always used when he wrote cards to Lily. However, there turned out to be two problems with that. For one thing, it’s quite long (not in itself a clincher, but does make marketing more difficult). More importantly though, there is already another WW2 era book with almost the identical title. And that is a HUGE problem when it comes to marketing.
So I wrestled and wrestled with the story, trying to come up with another title that would solve those problems. And it wasn’t until last month that I finally came up with something that was short, meaningful, and unique enough to make me happy. What did I come up with?
And as you see, I also now have a RELEASE DATE!!! October 5th! I will be having a book signing that day at the Currahee Military Museum in Toccoa, GA, during their annual WW2 event: Currahee Miliatary Weekend. (More info on that coming soon.)
Now, I know a lot of you are wondering why “Where Daffodils Bloom” is a meaningful title. And what daffodils have to do with anything anyway. Well, all I can tell you is….
They have a LOT to do with a LOT of things in the story, and once you read it, you’ll understand. *secretive chuckle*
So… are you excited about it? Would you like to get your hands on an early copy, before the release date, and be part of a special team working to promote the book and make it a smashing success? Then check out this page about how you can join my Book Launch Team! You’ll get to participate in the back stage process of a book launch, read and review an early edition of the book, brainstorm promotion ideas, and earn an exclusive coupon code for the hardback! In exchange, you’ll help make sure the whole world hears about this story. Are you up for that? I’d love you have you on the team!
And if you aren’t ready to commit to being part of the launch team, but still want a special discount on the book when it comes out, then be sure to join my mailing list. You’ll be the first to know when the book is available, and get a special discount only for subscribers! (And if you’ve missed any of the Sneak Peeks, you can find them all here.)
Hold onto your hats everyone. The release date will be here before you know it! Meanwhile, I hope you all enjoy speculating about those daffodils…
